Potholes Cause Accidents
We have explained in our blog how potholes can cause serious accidents. The Toledo area has several potholes right now due to the snow storm we had last week. When severe weather pours down on roadways and the plows clear it away, there is significant wear and tear to the surface of the roads.
We urge motorists to be aware of the potential for potholes on roadways. Be cautious and drive defensively so you do not find yourself in an accident.
Am I responsible for an accident caused by a pothole?
If you happen to lose control of your vehicle because of a pothole and end up colliding with another vehicle, you would most likely be deemed at fault. This is why we urge drivers to be so cautious – we want to prevent accidents, injuries, and financial headaches for everyone!
If you have been in an accident with someone else who failed to control their vehicle because of a pothole and you ended up suffering injury, call our office at 800.637.8170. You will have a chance to speak directly with an attorney about the accident and your injuries, ask any questions that you may have, and gain an understanding of the legal steps that you must take to receive compensation.
